Top 10 Sold Vehicles of the Year

  1. 1. Chevrolet Silverado

    Chevrolet Silverado

    The Chevrolet Silverado has a lot going for it, but its impressive list of available features and trims mean there's something for everyone. That's probably why it was the best-selling car in America in 2022.

  2. 2. Ford F-Series

    Ford F-Series

    The F-150 is our favorite light-duty pickup, and it's one of the best-selling vehicles of all time. Its blend of innovative features, everyday comfort, and overall usability helped make it our Top Rated truck for 2022 and 2023.

  3. 3. Toyota RAV4

    Toyota RAV4

    The Rav4 is Toyota's small, two-row crossover SUV and the default choice for those who want a utility vehicle that's easy to live with, efficient, and comes from a brand with a reputation for reliability.

  4. 4. Ram 1500/2500/3500

    Ram 1500/2500/3500

    Even though the Ram 1500 isn't as popular as its rivals from Ford or Chevy, its opulent interior and handsome exterior has helped it gain ground on the competition in recent years.

  5. 5. Toyota Camry

    Toyota Camry

    The Toyota Camry is the only sedan on this list, and for good reason. It's comfortable, quiet, easy to live with and more than spacious enough for those who don't feel the need to move to a crossover.

  6. 6. Honda CR-V

    Honda CR-V

    The Honda CR-V rivals the Rav4 in nearly every way while being more enjoyable to drive. After nearly 30 years on sale, the CR-V is still at the top of its game.

  7. 7. GMC Sierra

    GMC Sierra

    The GMC Sierra isn't the least popular light-duty truck on sale, but it can't match the Ram, Ford, or Chevy for sheer popularity. That said, its posh interior and trick tech make it an excellent choice for those who want to daily drive a pickup.

  8. 8. Toyota Tacoma

    Toyota Tacoma

    The Tacoma is the only mid-size truck on this list, and for good reason. Its reputation for reliability and capability mixed in with its no-nonsense feature set means it stands alone in its class.

  9. 9. Tesla Model Y

    Tesla Model Y

    Yes, an EV really was one of the most popular vehicles sold last year. The Model Y is the only electric car on this list thanks to its plentiful range figure, reliable fast-charging network, spacious interior and potent acceleration.

  10. 10. Toyota Highlander

    Toyota Highlander

    The Toyota Highlander is safe, efficient and spacious to boot. No surprise it's the largest SUV on this list and the only three-row to break into the top 10.
